5. The Life Insurance Assignment shall hereby be deemed fully and completely released.

 

6. Effective on the date hereof, Section 7(a)(8) of the Loan Agreement (relating to debt service coverage) shall be deleted in its entirety.

 

7.

8. Borrower hereby extends and reaffirms the liens on the Collateral and all other collateral securing the Note until the indebtedness and the Note, as modified, renewed and extended hereby, have been fully paid, and agrees that the extension, rearrangement and modification set forth herein shall in no manner affect or impair the Note or the liens securing the same, and that said liens shall not in any manner be waived, the purpose of this instrument being simply to extend, rearrange and modify the time or manner of payment of the indebtedness evidenced by the Note, to modify the Note, Pledge Agreement, and other Loan Documents, and to carry forward all liens securing the same, which are acknowledged by Borrower to be valid and subsisting. Borrower further agrees that all terms and provisions of the Note and of the instrument or instruments creating or fixing the liens securing the same shall be and remain in full force and effect as therein written, except as otherwise expressly provided herein.

As a material inducement to Lender to execute and deliver this Modification, Borrower hereby acknowledges and agrees that Borrower is well and truly indebted to Lender in the amount set forth hereinabove, and that the liens, security interests and assignments created by the Pledge Agreement and any other Loan Documents are, respectively, valid and subsisting liens, security interests, and assignments, and are of the validity and priority recited in the Pledge Agreement, and the other Loan Documents. As further material inducement to Lender to execute and deliver this Modification, Borrower hereby acknowledges that there are no claims or offsets against, or defenses or counterclaim to, the terms or provisions or other obligations created or evidenced by the Loan Documents, and represent that, after modification of the Note, Pledge Agreement, and other Loan Documents hereunder, no event has occurred, and no condition exists which would constitute a default, either with or without notice or lapse of time, or both, under the Loan Documents.

 

9. Borrower reaffirms and remakes, as of the date hereof, all representations and warranties contained in the Note, Pledge Agreement, and other Loan Documents. Borrower further represents and warrants that, except as disclosed in writing to Lender, it has done nothing, nor has allowed anything, to adversely affect title to or encumber the Collateral or any other collateral of Borrower in which Lender has a security interest. Borrower further represents and warrants to Lender that it is aware of no condition or fact, which has not been disclosed in writing to Lender, which would materially adversely affect the repayment to Lender of all sums due under the Loan Documents.

14. If any provision of this Modification or application to any party or circumstance shall be determined by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid and unenforceable to any extent, the remainder of this Modification or the application of such provision to such person or circumstances, other than those as to which it is so determined invalid or unenforceable, shall not be affected thereby, and each provision hereof shall be valid and shall be enforced to the fullest extent permitted by law.
